Exceptional Human Experience (Journal)

Semiannual journal founded and edited by Rhea A. White. Its central subject matter is exceptional human experience, which consists of experiences that begin as anomalous ones or anomalies of experience (first-time experiences) and when they become transformative they are called exceptional human experiences. The journal consists of research reports; methodological, historical, and theoretical articles about EHEs; EHE autobiographies and accounts of specific EHEs; abstracts of books, journal and magazine articles; and dissertations on EHEs or subjects relevant to EHEs, such as altered states of consciousness and dissociation, transpersonal and humanistic psychology, qualitative research methodology; and works drawn from the disciplines of anthropology, folklore, religious studies, sociology, and women's studies. Autobiographical and biographical articles and books are also covered. Address: Exceptional Human Experience Network, Inc., 414 Rockledge Rd., New Bern, NC 28562.

Exceptional Human Experience (EHE)

Exceptional Human Experience (EHE)

Umbrella term coined by Rhea A. White to cover the full range of anomalous human experiences. When a person has potentiated the sensed but hidden meaning of an experience, consciously realizing it, this realization usually transforms the identity, lifeview, lifestyle, and worldview of that person. It is at this point that it becomes an EHE because the anomalous experience or anomaly of experience has enabled the person to actualize more of his or her hidden human potential than would have been possible without the experience. The end result of most EHEs is a greater sense of connectedness, with previous unknown parts of self, with other people, with other species, and with the universe. White has identified 240 specific types of EHEs and groups them into seven broad classifications: death-related, desolation/nadir, encounter, healing, mystical, peak, psychical.
